LYMM RFC has announced that Tom Bray will captain the 1st XV for the 2020/21 season taking over from his brother Adam, who stepped down from skipper duties at the end of last season.
Tom, youngest of the Bray brothers, was the natural choice to lead the team into a new chapter, as a stalwart for the club, always leading the way on the pitch with his performances and regularly being involved with coaching the next
crop of talent throughout the Mini and Junior ranks.
Fatherhood has seen Tom mature into a natural mentor, helping young players to develop and to understand the culture that has been created within the squad.
On being named Captain Tom said: “It’s a massive honour to be named as 1st team captain. Having been a part of this club as a mini an junior as well as 12 seasons of senior rugby, I’m really looking forward to leading a very talented and exciting squad in what can hopefully be a successful year for us”
Director of Rugby, Adam Fletcher echoed Tom’s excitement commenting: “I’ve known Tom for close to 15 years. He’s been an outstanding servant to Lymm RFC over the years and thoroughly deserves the honour of 1st XV captain. Tom has evolved over the last few years into a really impressive leader. I love the way he goes about training and really appreciate his knowledge of the game. I can’t wait to start working with Tom in his new role.”
After battling a couple of injuries last season Tom has returned to pre-season looking fit and sharp and everyone at Lymm is looking forward to seeing how he goes about bringing the best out this young squad for the 2020/21 season. Good luck Tom.
